    Alright guys, sorry it took so long, but here it is! the BTP of the week

    Galvantula
    Tier: RU
    Smogon Recommended Set: Compundeyes @ Life Orb / Choice Specs
    -Thunder
    -Bug Buzz
    -Hidden Power Ground
    -Giga Drain / Volt Switch
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

    Why we recognize this Pokemon: Due to Gavantula's fantastic ability in Compoundeyes, it gets a nearly perfectly accurate STAB Thunder. Galvantula does run into some problems though. There are lots of Pokemon that can outspeed this spider, but he does manage to outspeed many threats in the tier. Due to Galvantula's fairly low special attack stat, it must rely on a boosting item such as a Life Orb or Choice Specs, and Thunder is it's main heavy hitting attack. Galvantula is fairly frail though, but it's typing grants it only two weaknesses.

    I had some fun with the critter but he just didn't stand out enough for me to continue using him.

    Maybe another time little bug :3

    I also wanted Joltik to be a little lightning bolt of speed!

    Little cup fun~
    But no :/ Didn't deliver those precious stats

    For me, Galvantula was fantastic for playing through the games. I used it on all of my in-game teams in gen 5.

    It's actually a part of my mono Bug team, and has proven to be pretty strong. I run it with Electro Ball and Choice Scarf.
    I have claimed Scizor, the king of Bug-Types.

    Electro Ball is pretty fun for Galvantula. A little risky though of course, but not a bad move to run

    If I had to randomly poke around for a reason it would likely be the two weaknesses and only one type that gets .5 damage from dragon types (all other neutral or weak to dragon attacks).

    Dragon has bothered me since Gen 1 :/

    Yes, I use them. It's silly to ignore a type so viable, but dang it they have such easy coverage.

    Maybe Bugs can be super-effective against Fairies. Pests versus pretty pests would be the theme.
    Vivillion doesn't look like it's getting anything special, not even in Fairy moves or new abilities. But I hope GameFreak gives us a new Bug type that blows us away.

    Like I said. Seems pretty obvious to me that Vivillion will be a crappy bug meant to continue the caterpie theme (That part we all already know because it isn't some secret lol)

    I'm aiming for Pinsir evo this gen and a new pokemon in that park of bugs (Pinsir / Scyther / Heracross).

    Maybe save us some time and get a Heracross evo too?
    Blah if I care. I just want more bug I suppose hehe

    Yeah. You know me so well ._.

    Eheheh... Forgot to link the Button to the OP :P


    But... Yeah, I always like using Masquerain as it pretty much has one of the best Movepools any Bug ever had (outside Gen V <_<).

    His movepool was pretty fantastic back in the day. Shame he didn't get STAB status from Hydro Pump though >.>

    Yeah :P

    Although it's Attack Stat was horrid compared even to it's SP. Attack so it could barely utilize either of it's STAB anyway <_< Granted that was fixed in DP but that Gen IV didn't always help it.

    I really like it since it's like the only Bug to have access to both the General Water and General Bug/Flying Movepools, basically consisting of Water, Ice, Bug, Flying, along with some odd-ball Moves like Ominous Wind, Energy Ball, Giga Drain, Psybeam and Twister :P


    Plus it's like my Favorite Pokémon ever.

    Oh I meant to be a little more specific, but I realized my post wasn't very clear. It is going to be a new section added onto the BTP of the week. But any ideas for an entirely new section is appreciated ^_^
